The Magical Mountain Camellia
Saturday, June 26 This outing finds us discovering the (Stewartia ovata) Mountain camellias west of Clayton, Georgia, with renown expert, Jack Johnston. We'll take a short walk
through an unusual site, which will first allow for the examination of
a pitch pine forest growing among rocks bearing magnesium.
Then a dry streambed will provide access to a somewhat open forest
containing Mountain camellias. This trip will
be over uneven ground and will not be on a path. REGISTER HERE $45
The Mountain Camellia in a landscaped setting
Tuesday, June 29
This is a trip for those who want to walk a path to look at
mountain camellias growing in a thinned forest setting on private
land at Otto, NC. The bushes grow in a narrow hollow and tend
to flower a few days later than is typical for more exposed settings.
This experience allows one to see vibrant displays of some of the
native ferns. Numerous species of native plants can be examined
